This is Gaming Cypher’s iPAD review for Peppy Pals Beach by Peppy Pals AB out of Sweden.
Peppy Pals Beach is designed specifically for children ages under five years of age and utilizes an easy-to-use interface without any text, advertisements, or in-app purchases. The game is based solely upon emotions, and teaches children the valuable lessons of social skills and friendship.
In Peppy Pals Beach you will find Sammy (horse), Reggy (dog), Izzy (owl), Gabby (rabbit) and Kelly (cat) along with a friendly whale and a flying seagull as well as several other critters. Children will simply tap on the screen on the animal of their choice and guide that particular animal to play with toys, eat, or help others. They will immediately realize if their actions caused the other animals to feel happiness, sadness, fear or anger just by noticing how their facial features change. The child player can then choose other actions if he or she is not happy with the result of their previous action.
Another great feature of this game is that it is gender-free. This, in turn, will allow the child to imagine whether or not their animal is male or female. Children will also love the heart shape which is incorporated in the animals’ design. And last, but not least, the play map environment is very relaxed with hints of humor. The backgrounds are beautifully hand-drawn and the environments are designed to keep children happy, relaxed and having fun while learning the valuable lesson of empathy at the same time.
